Spare $3 Million? Ferrari’s Hairy-Chested 288 GTO Shows Up For Sale In Boston

An example of the only model Ferrari made with Group B in mind is up for sale in Boston.

Every vintage Ferrari is a special car but some of them inevitably are much more significant than others, like the hairy-chested 288 GTO we have here. One of only 272 cars ever made, the 288 GTO was Ferrari’s homologation special in order to compete in the Group B.

The story didn’t end up well for those who wanted to actually witness the 288 GTO go racing as FIA cancelled the whole Group B class after the death of Henri Toivonen in the 1986 Tour de Corse but what we were left with was a balls-to-the-wall twin-turbo mid-engined manual masterpiece, one of the all-time best cars to ever wear the Prancing Horse badge.

It’s no wonder then that 288 GTOs are demanding stratospheric amounts of money these days, with our example here asking for $3,050,000 plus taxes and licencing. Painted in the classic Rosso Corsa on black interior, this 288 GTO has covered 12,900 miles since 1985, has factory air-conditioning and power windows and is also Ferrari Classiche Certified.

You can find the car waiting for its next, lucky owner in McLaren Boston (oh, the irony…) and you can find us scouting YouTube for videos like this one.

H/T To Matt!
